Nobel title

Owen Gingerich, born 1930, Professor Emeritus of Astronomy and History of Science at Harvard University

Owen Gingerich

Allan Sandage said: “The nature of God is not to be found within any part of the findings of science. For that one must turn to scriptures … .”

“The more we learn about the universe and the physics that governs it, the more reasons we gain to believe in Christ as Creator and Lord.” “The world is too complicated in all its parts and interconnections to be due to chance … . I am convinced that the existence of life with all its order and each of its organisms is simply too well put together.”

“If there is no God, nothing makes sense. The atheist's case is based on a deception they wish to play upon themselves that follows readily from their initial premise. And if there is a God, he must be true to science and religion. If it seems not so, then one’s hermeneutics (either the pastor's or the scientist's) must be wrong.”
